June 2013: 'Tom Walker and Todd Helgeson: Two Authors, Two Alaskan Adventurers'

by Michelle Saport  |   

Friday, June 21, 1-3 p.m. UAA Campus Bookstore

Tom Walker is an award-winning writer and photographer who currently lives on the edge of Denali National Park. His newest book, "The Seventymile Kid: The Lost Legacy of Harry Karstens and the First Ascent of Mount McKinley," joins his canon of more than a dozen books on Alaska wildlife and natural history.

Todd Helgeson is the author of the "Alaska Bouldering Guide," the first guidebook to bouldering in Alaska. The book, co-written with Kelsey Gray, introduces more than 15 bouldering areas from Juneau to Fairbanks, documenting hundreds of possible problems in detail, using high quality color photographs.

Join the two authors as they discuss adventures in Alaska, writing and photography.

This event is free and open to the public. There is free parking for all UAA Campus Bookstore events in the South Lot, West Campus Central Lot (behind Rasmuson Hall), Sports Center West Lot (between Seawolf drive and the Wells Fargo Sports Complex) and the Sports Center Northwest Lot (east of Seawolf Drive, across from West Campus Central Lot).
